Vlog on the Pitch — Ramos on the ropes at Spurs
It’s not easy being a Spurs fan at the moment and if the team suffer another bad result against Hull City on Sunday it’s going to be an uncomfortable international break for Juande Ramos.
Owen Wyatt is joined by Vlog on the Pitch regular Jon Bramley and Mike Davidson to discuss the underlying reasons for the team’s disappointing start to the season. They also take a glance over to Germany, where a Hamburg side coached by Martin Jol — remember him? – are currently top of the league.
So what is the main problem? Is it a lack of quality in the squad? And if so, is that the fault of Ramos or other, more powerful, figures at the club? Is it really time to make a change ?
Give us your thoughts in the comments or feel free to give us a link to a Vlog of your own on the subject. If we like the video, we’ll find a home for it here.
My own feeling is that this is still too early in the season to condemn a manager, even if they have been looking like “a half-hearted express train leading off into nowhere land”, to quote Tottenham Hotspur Blog News. Ramos’s Sevilla were such a thrill to watch that surely it’s worth persevering a little longer, even though, as Owen says, perhaps Spurs could do with signing the coach’s old boss Monchi as well.
